One year I had a Christmas card with a snowy lighthouse and all the usual trimmings. I think I kept one after I mailed them out.
Like the urban exploration photos with naked people. Only this one is vintage and less posed than many of the modern photos. I like the look over her shoulder. I doubt any of her curves have been air brushed, or Photoshopped.
Vintage (1960’s) Canadiana teacup and saucer. I am so very tempted to buy this set. But, it’s a bit pricey to consider with shipping and then… I’d feel awful if it came damaged during delivery. I think that bothers me more than spending the money on it. Yet…. I haven’t closed the page from Etsy.
Offering a lovely pink coloured and gold gilded fine bone china tea cup by Aynsley of England. Featuring H.R.H. Princess Margaret set in a wonderful cameo picture on the interior of this commemorative set for her visit to Canada in 1958.
I seldom actually drink tea but I like pretty, vintage and delicate tea cups and saucers. Best of all, I like when they are not a set, all perfect and all matching each other. A mismatched set has more charm and variety and seems less tight laced and formal.
Whether you drink a lot of tea or just a little, a pretty cup and saucer is a treat and just nice for Valentine’s Day for someone who doesn’t want chocolates, candy, flowers or much of the traditional Valentine romance. Instead, think of a teacup (don’t forget the matching saucer because the actual cup and saucer should match or you just look like you are very bad at washing your dishes).
This blushing vintage pretty comes from Etsy. It’s a bit expensive but it really suits Valentine’s Day.
